Able to present the matter( that we have already prepared) without any mistakes is good. But the way we present is more important. Looking straight in to the wall, concentrating our eye in to a particular point do not serve the purpose. Speaking like an express train is another way of making the audience bored.
Probably many of us must have felt unhappy by the way people have responded. Sometimes they’l be sleeping, reading something else , speaking to each other,and sometimes watching the crows above. But we can actually get control of their reaction.
First of all we must be prepared with the matter. Keep a note of what you are going to present.
Secondly, we should do rehearsal. Rehearsal need not be done with a set of people or in front of mirror. Rehersal can be done in our mind itself. We should be very much clear about what we are actually going to speak.
Then comes the most important part i.e, our presentation. Use very simple and direct language. Speak loudly & make sure that you keep eye contact with the people. Use a bit of humour so as to make your presentation lively and effective.
When you are in the stage, you are the master of your words. Be confident and brave enough to explain what is there in your mind.
